Documentation Build Instructions

Simple install requirements, run the build command within docs directory.

You will need a C compiler: GCC or clang. To test if you have either GCC or clang, type gcc or clang into your terminal. If you get an error that says “command not found” then follow the install instructions for your OS:

  • Mac:
    • You will need XCode. Once you have XCode on your machine, you will need to navigate to Preferences –> Downloads –> and select Command Line Tools to download & install.
  • Fedora: sudo yum install gcc python-devel
  • Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev – you may need to run sudo apt-get update first.

Once the compiler is set up:

pip install -r docs/requirements.txt
mynt gen docs build
(cd build && python -m SimpleHTTPServer)


PLEASE – When editing tutorial or full source code, please edit the documentation to go along with it within the docs folder (and vis-versa.

When writing documentation, please use smart quotes.


  1. Network/IRC bot tutorial language
  2. Sudoku/GUI tutorial language
  3. Add better tags for subjects that are covered in tutorial parts (e.g. Generators, Iterators, classes, etc).
  4. Learn anchoring for Mynt/Markdown
  5. Remove the opening of the dataviz files in the tutorial to not "give away the answers"!
